Not really. The SMP stuff is the same in both so its easier and saner to fix
it in 2.1.x first test it and backport it. The elf coredump bug I can't
even duplicate here, so Im not sure what it is yet.

For 2.0.x its more important that a fix doesnt destroy all the working for
all but the 1 in 100,000 sufferers than gets done instantly. So 2.1 is a good
test bed for 2.0. fixes
